Hi ive just brought a second hand setup and the ro unit is a 4 stage with di. When I did this before the di unit was the final chamber to polish off the water but the way this one is setup the water goes through filter 1 and 2 then to the di chamber and then back down to chamber 3 (1 2 and 3 being the canisters at the bottom).
Is this normal?

Many thanks

Terry.

That’s correct, going in this order chamber 1 sediment filter chamber 2 carbon block then up to the top wich is your membrane then back down to chamber 3 di pod.

Thanks for the swift reply Tim. Yeah I thought it was right but I just wanted to double check as my last one the di unit was on the top and I filled it with resin.

Thanks again

Terry.

The upright canisters for di are much better, there’s less chance of the water making a channel in the pod

Is this di resin new or nearly depleted? I brought it second hand so I have no idea which way round it is.

Thanks.
